2nd Test Australia vs India Perth: It sure looks like the track has livened up as the game has progressed. A lethal bouncer by Jasprit Bumrah to Marcus Harris knocked down the opener, thankfully he did not injure himself as he got right up on his toes. The incident happened in the second innings of Australia. The ball was bowled at 142 kmph that hit Harris on his helmet, right on the badge. As soon as this happened, the physio came out quickly to examine. The Indian players – Rahane, Rahul and Pant came up to the batsman to ask if he was alright.
